26 Most Creative Double Exposure Photographs

Originally posted on Photofocus:

Double Exposure is catching on as quite the artistic trend.  Whether it’s digital or analog, the process of double exposing your frame always makes for an interesting and beautiful mix of emotion.  And our friends over at ViewBug had a great contest for double exposures, and the top 26 were quite fantastic.

This show blew my mind. Tehching Hsieh punched in a time sheet every hour for a whole year, documenting it with photography and a witness. I read about the exhibition outside the room before entering and I wasn’t truly prepared for the impact of what that process looks like. The walls are full of the photographs and time sheets of Hsieh, moving sequentially around the room.

Hsier shaved his head at the beginning of the project and you can track in the photographs as it gradually grows back. The exhibition has a video sequence showing all the photographs in haunting succession. What’s clear is his sleep deprivation. I searched for a hint of his headspace. The process looks draining and almost hypnotic.

The work is shocking in its relation to social-political structure, made obvious with the use of the time sheet, the uniform that Hsieh dressed in, and the methodical…

fantastic submerged photographic portraiture

Originally posted on Northern Europe Art Today:

“I believe in a single image. It breaths strong.”

Born in Helsinki, 1978, Susanna Majuri breaks into the contemporary art world with her suspended images, full of poetry, her completely original approach to photography as chosen expressive language.
Her shots are intricate constructions where the element of water glids as a narrative flow, enfolding her female characters in a previously setted scenario and lately fixing the story in a ultimate image: by observing her work the viewer is actually thrown in a dream-like atmosphere, finding himself holding his breath, reeling in the emotional involvement of the image.

Combining settings and peoples Majuri follows the logic of colors, as it’s her great conviction that photography must convey emotions. Her main purpose is to narrate feelings as novels, the multiple chances that rise touching the environment and
approaching to people and their unpredictability: there’s always an element of surprise, since the artist herself is thrown in a fictive…

Andrea Chambers, Blue Tile Diptych

Andrea Chambers (BA (Hons) Painting) puts color on a grand scale in her striking canvases. They’ve got prime placement on the mezzanine level of the sculpture court at ECA, so they’re impossible to miss and that’s definitely a good thing.

The artist’s ECA Degree Show 2014 page can be found here.
